Andrew Bird Announces New Album Are You Serious | Concord

Coming April 1st via his new label home Loma Vista Recordings (Spoon, St. Vincent, HEALTH) and produced by Tony Berg, the album propels him into a new category of American songwriters.
Andrew Bird has always been highly respected and has held a captive audience with his story telling prowess, but it's with his new album, Are You Serious, that he has made a breakthrough record.
From the album art, created by the godfather of conceptual art John Baldessari to foregoing his traditional writing process, Bird has emerged from challenging times and a new process with an album that may be his best.
Premiered on Conan last night, the first single "Capsized" begins to take you down the path that Bird so carefully crafted on the record, speaking from an unguarded point of view while keeping with the melodic, syntactic standards that he has held true to since the beginning of his career.

Watch: Bad//Dreems 'Hiding To Nothing' Acoustic To Celebrate 'Dogs At Bay' LP Release - Music Feeds

Bay The album, which we said delivers "raw lyrics, maniacal guitar and all round sing-along thrashings" and then some, sees the quartet explore stories and anecdotes from a uniquely Australian upbringing paired with punk-injected indie-rock and soaring acoustic gems.


The Academy's board announced on Thursday that Dugan's role running the music industry organisation was in limbo because "of concerns raised to the Recording Academy Board Of Trustees, including a formal allegation of misconduct by a senior female member of the Recording Academy team".
Chuck D is the first to speak out in favour of CEO Deborah Dugan, who was put on "administrative leave" last week.
Many argued that - while there may be diversity issues in the music community at large - when it came to the Grammys specifically the diversity issues were within the Academy itself.
Quite what Dugan may "expose" about her short stint running the Academy remains to be seen.
Following last week's stern announcement from the Academy board confirming Dugan's "administrative leave", her lawyer issued a statement insisting that "what has been reported is not nearly the story that needs to be told".
